CLASS POEM 

Not what you get, 

But what you give; 
Not what you say, 

But how you live; 
Giving the world the love it needs, 

Living a life of noble deeds. 

Not whence you came, 

But whither bound; 
Not what you have. 

But whether found 
Strong for the right, 

The good, the true; 
These are the things worth ivhile to you. 



CLASS MOTTO 

The elevator to success is not running. 
Take The Stairs.

THE PROPHECY 

HE stately Leviathan was plowing its way through the star- 
it waters of the Atlantic. On deck a dreamy young woman 
stood gazing out to seat, in the hushed silence there came to her 
memories of her commencement days; twenty years ago that night 
she had graduated from Centenary Academy. She turned and 
entered the salon and as she paused a moment to watch the danc- 
ers she lost -all signs of sophistication, for there was Maurice, 
one of her classmates of '27, directing the most famous orchestra 
in the world. As the music stopped and he left the platform, he 
caught sight of her. 

"Elizabeth," he exclaimed, as he readier her. "How strange that 
we should meet on this particular night. What have you been do- 
ing and where are you going, come out on deck and let's take a 
stroll." 

"I'm on my way to join my husband, who is the Foreign Am- 
bassador to the Fiji Islands. I have been in New York visiting 
Marye who is the happy wife of ? ? ? ? ? ?. You know she was 
quite a heart-breaker in her debutante days, but she has settled 
down now. Ora has also become domesticated, she and jimmie are 
living in Havana. We never expected her to be contented with one 
man, but she seems to be." 

"Have you heard from Zehtner? No? He has gone into poli- 
tics and is a member of the U. S. Senate from Louisiana. If his 
popularity continues to increase he will probably be our next 
President. And do you know that Ruth is the Governor of Pennsyl- 
vania? She surely fills the office well, too.'* 

"But have you heard of Florence? She has just started a con- 
cert tour of the United States and is still dividing her time between 
the piano and violin. Her audiences find it hard to decide which 
deserves the most praise. And one of our classmates speaks across 
the footlights to an entranced audience. We predicted this triumph 
for Jane when we saw her in Academy presentations." 

"If you've been in New York of course you've seen the latest 
portrait Hazel has painted, for everyone is talking about it. You 
know, of the incomparable Dr. -Dr. -anyway her name was Miss 
Smith when she taught at the Academy. Hazel is painting in 
Paris now. Samford is in Paris now, too. You know he has found 
a new form of amusement; automobiles have lost their interest for 
him since he won an airplane race around the world and now he 
is trying to invent a faster means of locomotion. Sam Robertson 
has gone with Mr. Adams into the Congo to catch alligator.s" 




THE PINE BURR '27 



"I read the other day where Mrs. Carpenter had raised 
$2, 000,000 for her special Latin school, and I know you have 
heard of Mrs. Gibbins' success with her two books, 'Why Mathe- 
matics is an Exact Science' and 'The Proper Method of Closing 
Schools.' 0! yes! Orlando is writing also, her stories have caused 
many an old maid to go crazy." 

"I guess Jack will be the next one to become famous, since 
Miss Fink, who is President, hired him as Coach at Missouri. I 
heard that David had made millions by inventing a staticless radio, 
and that Kirby Shaw has one of the most widely known 'We Wreck 
'Em' establishments going. He takes everything from airplanes to 
bicycles but prefers Fords. No wonder, he surely got enough prac- 
t : ce at the Academy." 

"It is getting quite late and I really must be going, but I just 
have to tell you about Mr. and Mrs. Whitsitt. They have absolutely 
the most exclusive modiste shop on Fifth Avenue. I saw Robert 
Willis going in there the other day, too. He's another famous 
member of our class. Why, I see advertisements for "Bob's Best 
Bread" everywhere I go. Twenty years doesn't seem long, does it 
Maurice? But just look at our class now. I guess it's all in life. 
Well, I must go in so I'll see you in the morning. Good-night!" 

"Good-night!" 

And as she slowly continued her way she was positive she 

heard voices. She paused. 

"Our game, your serve next." 

"I did hit the bull's eye, too." 

"Shoot it Elizabeth, that's it, Rah! for our side." 

"One whole page $25, one half page $15.' 

"Come on to English." 

"Is there a Girl Reserve meeting to-night?" 

"Let's go to the game afterwards." 

"Hurry, Elizabeth, and we can make the next light, too.' 

"Mine is georgette, and I'm going to wear kid slippers 

"No, olives and potatoe chips." 

She started on aajain. Memories! Memories!

IF 



I 



If you can keep your socks when all about you 

Arc loosing theirs and blaming it on you; 
If, when the jam is gone and others doubt you, 

5 ou make allowance for their hunger, too, 
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting 

On tables when the pantry's scant of pies, 
And eat what's left without a trace of hating, 

And yet don I look too good, nor talk loo ivise; 

If you can play, and not make play your master; 

If you can work and not make toil your aim; 
If, when your tent blows down in grim disaster, 

You keep your smile in action just the same; 
If you can stand to have the bough you've broken 

Stolen by knaves to make a bed for fools; 
And, with a word of banter fitly spoken, 

Go gather more with only borrowed tools; 



If you can make one heap of all your bedding, 

And air it on a fence rail by the wood ; 
And when it rains not talk about hard sledding, 

And call a cinder in the coffee good; 
If you can jump, and run. and swim, and paddle, 

And yet not throw waste paper in the yard; 
Nor grumble at your leader in the saddle, 

Nor ever say that anything is hard; 



If you can put on stunts and keep your virtue, 

And never wrangle out of work or such, 
If neither bugs nor loving ants can hurt you, 

If mealtime counts with you but not too much; 
If you can fill each swiftly passing minute, 

With sixty seconds worth of stainless fun, 
Your's is the camp and everything that's in it 

And which is more, you'll be a boy, my son.

COURAGE 
Edgar A. Guest 

When the burden grows heavy, and rough is the why, 

When you falter and slip, and it isn't your day, 

And your best doesn't measure to what is required, 

When you know in your heart that you re fast growing tired, 

With the odds all against you, there's one thing to do: 

That is, call on your courage and see the thing through. 

W ho battles for victory ventures defeat. 

Misfortune is something we all have to meet; 

Take the loss with the grace you would, take in the gain. 

When things go against you, dont whine or complain; 

Just call on your courage and grin if you can. 

Though you fail to succeed, do not fail as a man. 

There are dark days and story, which come to us all, 

When about us in ruin our hopes seem to fall. 

But stand to whatever you happen to meet 

We must all drink the bitter as well as the sweet. 

And the test of your courage is: What do you do 

In the hour when reverses are coming to you? 

Never changed is the battle by curse or regret, 

Though you whimper and whine, still the end must be met. 

And who fights a good fight, though he struggle in vain, 

Shall have many a victory to pay for his pain. 

So take your reverses as part of the plan 

Which God has devised for creating a man.

Dearest Betty, 

Friday was the last day of school — just think, two weeks for our holidays, 
but let me tell you what we did in Assembly. Jack Dyer played his trombone and 
sang, and Florence played the piano and Ora gave a reading, and Audrey danced. 
Say, you know she's one more good dancer. I could watch her all day. She did the 
cutest Russian dance, and she looked darling with her hair slicked back. The G. R.'s 
gave a play, you can call it that if you wish. It was a very modern wedding. 0! 
Boy! Orlando was the bride and Hazel was the groom, and they surely did make 
a hot looking couple. Ruth was the preacher, and ye Gods! what a preacher she 
was. Then there was some scenery and some bridesmaids and things like that. Any- 
way, after it was ail over, the Faculty gave the school a Weenie Roast. yes! I for- 
got to tell you that the football boys got their sweaters then, too, and they surely are 
cute. But about this Weenie Roast. Elijah had built a fire during Assembly, but 
we still baked just as much as the weenies, but that's where the fun came in. Tra- 
La. We had potato chips and pickles and everything that goes with weenies to 
make them good. For some reason or other we did not have the rest of our classes 
(you'll often wonder, but you'll never know), but we all said good-bye and gath- 
ered up our junk and left. Will you look what time it is, and I have to be at town 
by four. Good-bye. 



Yours till the bed springs.

Dearest Betty, 

Gee, but I'm tired and sleepy, but Fve had oodles and gobs of fun. Last 
evening the Staff had a Kid party in the Gym, with Miss Polly as our chaperone. 
There were only about ten of us and we had enough stuff to eat to kill two cows. 
Speck brought about a million cases of coc's (maybe that is exaggerated but it didn't 
seem like it) and the girls brought the rest. 0! how I wished someone had left 
theirs at home about three o'clock the next morning. Elizabeth had her vie. and 
I can still hear "She's Still My Baby." We played Bridge, too (naturally) and 
Cootie. Say, Betty, the next time the gang gets together play Cootie and I'll guar- 
antee you'll have a gay evening. It's the Lepidoptera's Appendix. Eventually, after 
we had played all things kids play, for instance Little White House on the Hill and 
Drop the Handkerchief and London Bridge is Falling Down and Farmer in the Dell, 
we started home. Notice I said started, for Rock Benson had been trying his luck 
at mechanics again and it was raining cats and dogs. I sure was glad to get home 
cause I had nearly split laughing all evening, and it was a relief to be able to get 
in bed without stepping over coc bottles. I was asleep before I was half way in. 
Like D. PH.'s we got up and played Tennis the next morning even if we couldn't 
keep our eyes open. When it's onion time in Bermuda I'll breathe my love to you. 

BABS.

Top 0' The Morning To You, 

Here it is again, but I just had to tell you about our Kid Day at school and 
the gorgeous picnic the Staff had at Caspiana. That reminds me of the poetry I have 
for you. It is entirely original (with someone) 

"Empty sardine tins remind us. 
As we reach a spot sublime. 
That the party that pre-dined us. 
Had a simply gorgeous time.'" 

Betty, you should have seen the Seniors Monday. They usually are hope- 
less, but that wasn't even a beginning for them. Especially the assortment of dolls 
that they carried. Every kind you ever hoped to see. Ora had one nearly as large 
as she and that howled like two kids. Marye's and Elizabeth's and Jane's didn't 
make quite so much noise, but I know that Mrs. Gibbins could have murdered the 
whole bunch cheerfully. Orlando had on overalls and carried a little nigger baby 
and Hazel's doll matched her dress. The boys all looked like "Tie Me to Your Apron 
Strings Again" or worse. But about our picnic at Caspiana. When we eventually 
got there, we had a heck of a time leaving, it was nearly time to eat, but for once 
we didn't. At least not right then. There were some boats on the river that had 
the dumbest looking oars, just like they would fold up if you pulled too hard, but 
they didn't. Charlie Moore had his motor and he put it on one of the boats. ! Boy, 
there is nothing like running out of gas nine miles from nowhere without a paddle 
and just floating and drifting along in the sun. We played Bridge awhile and 
then ate, but everyone had been eating so much before then that all we wanted to 
do. was sleep and Miss Polly made us play Croquet instead. I guess she didn't want 
us to get fat. You ought to hear, not see, Speck play. He had Elizabeth and him- 
self through about a million games before we got started good. Unfortunately, 
everything didn't go right all the time, but they did win the first game. The boys 
went swimming later on in the afternoon. I guess they enjoyed it, they looked like 
it, especially when they were trying to stay on the surf board. Harry French was 
the only one that was light enough to stay on any length of time, though. We still 
played Bridge and took some pictures and then made tracks for home, at least the 
tracks were part of the way, when we stopped for everybody's hats. We surely did 
have a good time, too, and it showed Monday at school in every way from blistered 
arms and sunburned necks to a varied assortment of cakes found in the drive way. 
I've got pecks of things to do so I'll be moving on. 

Yours for more and better bed bugs.

SPEED 
(Dedicated to M. C. S.) 

Now and then I meet disaster 
As I drive my Chooingscow, 

And the surgeon's sticking plaster 
May be seen upon my brow; 

The result of going faster 
Than the traffic laws allow. 

Now and then my speed increases 
As I scorch along the lanes, 

And the laws are shot to pieces. 
With their penalties and pains. 

And my Loving Aunts and nieces, 
Gather up my tan remains. 

Nothing happens when I sanely 

Travel at a lawful gait, 
When my chugmobile is plainly 

Keeping the commandments straight, 
But there's trouble when I vainly 

Bust the statutes of the state. 

When I send the old bus rolling 
Fifty-seven miles an hour, 

I can hear the death bells tolling 
In the Ivy mantled tower; 

And the pharmacist, condoling. 
Rubs me with his ointment sour. 

I go splashing in the ditches 

When so merrily I spin, 
And the surgeon sews some stitches 

On my forehead and my chin, 
And the Undertaker itches 

For a chance to cop some tin. 

If we all would drive sedately 
Where the stream of traffic flows, 

Going forward slow and stately 
As the truely wise man goes, 

It would surely lessen greatly 
Heavy tasks the Sexton knows. 

But the long white road's before us, 

We have gasoline galore; 
And the speed laws only bore us, 

Wearies us and makes us sore. 
And the mourners sing in chorus, 

"They're not lost, but gone before.

BOYS' ATHLETICS 



ii 



Football 

The football season of 1926 was unsuccessful, the Academy losing to Doy- 
line, St. John's, Plain Dealing, and Mansfield High Schools, Two letter men from 
last year, Doyle George and Zehntner Biedenharn, formed the nucleus for this year's 
team. The majority of the boys were light and many were playing football for the 
first time. George Bridgers did not return so Zehntner Biedenharn was appointed 
Captain. All the boys that came out for football got to play in one full game or 
more and the following received letters: 



Captain Zehntner Biedenharn

Jack Towery 

Charles Christman 

Bill Davis 

Wayne Hungate 



Kirby Sh;

F. C. Nagle

Basketball 

The year 1926-27 was the best we have had for several years. The Acadamy 
won ten out of fourteen games, losing to the Noel Memorial-"Kidd-Russ" team by 
three points, and twice to Bossier High School. In one of the games with Bossier 
we had to play an extra five minute period to decide the game. 

Captain Gorlie Ware and Zehntner Biedenharn were a little more outstanding 
than the others, having had previous experience. But Charles Christman and Bill 
Davis, alternating at left forward, Maurice Cassity at left guard, Ollie Biedenharn, 
Harry French and David Easton all worked hard to make our team the success it was. 

Basketball was not only limited to the members of the team, however. Prac- 
tically every boy in school became interested and played on one of the Physical 
Ed. Teams. 



Baseball 



The Baseball season has just opened and the team has not played many 
games. So far they have won from South Highlands, Stonewall, and the Central 
Christian Church teams, losing to Elm Grove, St. John's, and Mooringsport. The 
season looks good, however, and about ten games have already been scheduled.

GIRLS' ATHLETICS 

Owing to the small number of girls, the pro- 
gram of activities for the Gym class was somewhat 
limited. However, this did not prevent keen riv- 
alry in all the sports. 

At the first of the year Clog Dancing was 
taught, which was very interesting and enjoyable 
and after learning a few fundamentals "Swanee," 
"Old Man," "Eliza Jane," "Dixie" and "Reuben 
Taps" clogs were learned. After Thanksgiving 
this was given up for Baseball. Captains and 
sides were chosen and a series of games were 
played as well as choosing sides and playing 
when these were finished. Because of the Swat 
Kings and the Star Pitchers, Baseball was enjoyed 
until February and 'then Basketball was played. 
Sides were chosen as in Baseball and the games 
were interesting to say the least. Only one game 
was played with other teams and that was with 
the Faculty of Fairfield Ave. Grade School, which 
unfortunately, was lost. So much interest was 
manifested in Basketball that it was going to be 
played until school was out, but the bows and ar- 
rows could not be resisted. It was discovered that 
we had some girls that could actually hit where 
they aimed when Archery was started. Two teams 
were chosen and the shooting really began. Arch- 
ery is so well liked that it will be continued until 
school closes.

That is a difficult question, an- 
swered the young man, removing his 
spectacles and wiping them reflec-

available shows my psychological 
age to be twelve, my moral age to 
be four, my anatomical age seven, 
and my physiological age six. I sup- 
pose, however, that you refer to my 
chronological age, which is eight. 
That is so old fashioned that I sel-

and waving of handkerchiefs, the 
train pulled out and the youngster 
gazed after it until it disappeared. 
Presently a locomotive came in sight 
with a train of the same length as 
the one that had taken his father 
away, and as it entered the station 
he clapped his hands excitedly. 

"Mamma, mamma!" he shouted.

SUMMER SUN 

The sun is up at half past four, 
All orange-red among the trees; 

He lights my room at half past four 

With ruby lamps set on the floor, 

And, crouching low upon his knees, 
Peers curiously between the trees. 

The sun walks swiftly on the lawn, 

And wakes the red rose and the white; 
He drives tall shades across the lawn 
With eager spears of flaming dawn; 

Then, climbing pine trees dark as night, 
Unbars his gates of golden light. 

The sun is high at six o'clock, 

His yellow face like molten brass; 
His burning breath at six o'clock 
Has drooped the rose and hollyhock, 
And in my bedroom looking glass 
Reflected glows his face of brass. 

The sun is blazing on my bed, 

And morn is yet no more than seven; 
His streams of gold o'erflow my bed, 
His shafts of gold torment my head, 

But pitying sleep wings swift from Heaven 
And softly shuts my eyes at seven.
